Sir,
Yours of July 29th 1854 came to hand by mail on the 15th inst, and in reply I have to inform you that a Mr. Abraham Stevens died at a place called Garden Grove, in Iowa, while on his way to the mountains. Whether this Mr. Stevens was your brother I am unable to say, neither am I acquainted with the circumstances of his death.
His widow came on with her father and settled in Utah County, and has since married a Mr. Hopkins who lives in Lehi City, Utah County, Utah Territory, and should you deem it worthwhile, by writing to her you may be able to learn all you wish.

Yours Respectfully

Brigham Young
